Port Hope - TEMPORARY CLOSURES - East Beach and Waterfront Trail

Due to a significant weather event, residents are advised that East Beach and the Waterfront Trail (at Lake Street and Hope Street South) are closed. Heavy rainfall has caused the backup of sewers in this localized area, resulting in a risk of sewage contamination on the Beach and Trail.

Closure signage is now in place and residents are asked to stay clear of the area. The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit has been notified and officials from the Health Unit will determine when it is safe to re-open the beach.
